Still a Workload, Just Not As Hectic

Ok, so I misunderstood the scope of the capstone class. I thought I would have to write a journal every class period and do a weekly report, but evedently our weekly report is our journal, so my workload has been cut some. We also were told that we only have to make one documentation per group and not by individual, so paperwork may not be as much an issue. Its still going to be a lot of work and will require some of my free time, but it won't be as strenuous as I thought. Updates will probably still take a hit, but not as bad as I feared.

Anyways, have a good weekend, everyone! I plan on watching some anime tomorrow. Kaze no Shana Stigma is on the docket and perhaps Comic Party, if nothing else comes up.

Quickie Entry: Anime Releases and Purchases

RightStuf had their Funimation sale and I bought a lot of DVDs that I have wanted. I should be receiving "Sgt. Frog Season 2 Part 1", "Bamboo Blade Part 2", and "Baccano! Complete Series" in the mail in a few days, and I can't wait to see the first two. I still love Baccano, but I already seen it twice in the past month, so I can wait on that.

I also preordered "Sgt. Frog Season 2 Part 2", "Soul Eater Part 1", "Soul Eater Part 2" and suprisingly "Kenichi the Mightiest Disciple Season 2 Part 1". So the next few months will be anime-rich, although Sould Eater really suprised me.

One series I am unsure of is "Strike Witches". It looks ok, but the blatant fanservice concerns me. I'm going to have to see a couple of episodes before I make my decision. A little fanservice doesn't bother me, but a series where they have fanservice every 5 minutes is a bit much for me. I also have a strict "no nudity" clause with anime which has caused me to pass by a few titles. I accidently got Full Metal Panic the Second Raid without realizing that there were some breasts shown for a few seconds. Sure, it was a few seconds, but it still made me uncomfortable. I know, I'm weird.

One last one I want to see dubbed really badly is "My Bride is a Mermaid". Funimation finally uploaded a couple of subbed episodes on youtube, and I actually laughed at some of the humor despite not having it in English, so I can't imagine what a rush it will be in English. I can't wait to see it!

That's all. I suppose this was more than a "quickie", but I don't care.
